Bicycles / Scooters

Tempe Bicycle/Scooter Registration
Tempe has one of the highest percentages of bicycle commuters in the country who use their bicycles for transportation, exercise and sport. Bicycle registration was designed to aid in the recovery of lost or stolen bicycles by providing unique identifying information that can help the Police Department identify and return found bikes to their owners. Once your contact information is registered in the system, applicants will receive several small stickers to place on the frame of their bicycle in case the bike is lost or stolen. When an officer or any citizen in Arizona finds a bicycle, a quick sticker scan can help reunite bike and owner with ease.
To Register Your Bike with the City of Tempe you will need the following information about the owner and bike:
- Person Particulars (Date of Birth, Sex, Race)
- Phone Number(s)
- Bicycle Information including Serial Number

Please don't abandon your bike. Others may find uses for it and your fellow cyclists will appreciate the vacant bike parking space!
Marina Heights Bike Cage Policy
Marina Height Bicycle cage is a secured storage facility for employees of State Farm. In order to gain access to the bicycle cage, the employee must complete a bicycle registration form which are located at every Lobby Desk including the Security Operations Center in Building 2.
A bicycle shall be deemed abandoned if it: (1) is in a state of disrepair as to be incapable of being operated in its present condition, or (2) has not been moved or used in more than 3 days and bears physical indication of having been deserted. This can include, but not be limited to; excessive rust, rust on chain, seat and handlebars coated in dirt or dust, flat tires.
If a bicycle is not relocated or claimed by its owner within 5 days of affixing the notice of abandonment, the bicycle will be removed and retained by DTA for a period of 30 days. If after being removed by DTA, and a bike is not claimed by its owner within the 30-day time period, it will be donated or recycled depending on the condition the bicycle is in.
Abandoned Bicycle/Scooter Policy
Not only do abandoned bicycles represent an eyesore, but they take up valuable bike parking spaces, may present tripping hazards, and most importantly tempt thieves. In an effort to increase safety and promote a clean vibrant campus, Marina Heights has implemented the following abandoned bicycle policy.
A bicycle shall be deemed abandoned if it: (1) is in a state of disrepair as to be incapable of being operated in its present condition, or (2) has not been moved or used in more than 14 days and bears physical indication of having been deserted. This can include, but not be limited to; excessive rust, rust on chain, seat and handlebars coated in dirt or dust, flat tires.
Any bicycle deemed abandoned pursuant to the above will have a notice affixed to it which informs the bicycle’s owner that the bicycle appears to be abandoned. Downtown Tempe Authority (DTA) is authorized to affix such notices upon bicycles. This notice indicates: (1) the phone number to contact DTA to inform them that the bicycle is not abandoned; and (2) the date after which the bicycle may be removed if it is not claimed by its owner.
Efforts will be made to identify the owners of possibly abandoned bikes. If the owner's e-mail address can be found and is still valid, a message is sent to notify that person that the bike is subject to impound, just as the paper warning notices does. A notice is sent to inform the owner how to recover the bike and it also gives the option of relinquishing claim on the bike, allowing DTA to dispose of the bike without the restrictions imposed by state law.
If a bicycle is not relocated or claimed by its owner within 5 days of the affixing of a notice of abandonment, the bicycle will be removed and retained by DTA for a period of 30 days. If after being removed by DTA, a bike is not claimed by its owner within the 30 day time period, it will be donated or recycled depending on the condition they bicycle is in.
If any member belonging to the Marina Heights facility is planning on leaving their bicycle on site for an extended period of time (i.e. vacation, leave of absence, business travel, etc) they must register their bike with DTA, who is located at the service window, and indicate the time frame in which they will be away. Anyone leaving their bike on site for an extended period of time is strongly encouraged to secure it in one of the bicycle corrals, preferable located in building 1.
